It took me a while to get the hang of burning iso's - then you assume everyone knows . . .

I am assuming that you wish to burn a standard Puppy 1.0.4 to start with?
If so go here:
ftp://ibiblio.org/pub/linux/distributions/puppylinux/

and download
puppy-1.0.4-mozilla.iso
then find that file with Burncdcc
and burn at the lowest speed (x2 or x4 usually) that Burncdcc displays

This will take the iso disk image and burn it on the CD

the file ending with gz is a gunzip - compressed file - which has to be un zipped first . . .

there are three possible versions of Puppy all ending with .iso

Standard - Open Office can be obtained with Pupget later
Barebones - smaller download
and Chubby - includes Open office

details and download locations of the iso are here:

Hope this helps and is what you wish to do . . .

Thank you, Lobster! At last I got somewhere with it all. Followed your lead to the download site and then your precise file name and label(puppy-1.0.4-mozilla.iso). I previously did not have the correct file or label. The download took 1 hour 5 minutes - I'm on broadband but it is not a fast line.
Then used Burncdcc to burn a disc and HEY PRESTO - a disc which works! Yes, I have had two small sessions just to show me it works. Working in Windows 98 I had to put in the complete file path - 'c:\My Documents\My Downloads\puppy-1.0.4-mozilla.iso' for Burncdcc to find the file. After that it was only about 8 minutes before I was happy once more.
Now I can play with Puppy, thanks to you and everyone else in the forum.
